Abstract

Occasionally, atopic dermatitis outbreaks can be severe and difficult to control, resistant to standard treatments. In these cases we can use wet wraps, a procedure with good results and few side effects. We present five patients with moderate to severe outbreaks resistant to conventional treatment treated with wet wraps with betamethasone or fluticasone propionate 10% diluted for 4-6 days. Complete resolution was obtained in four cases, the last one continued by domiciliary wet wraps for 2-3 days with final complete resolution. Any patient had adverse effects.
